7:05am
for the killings. the protests erupted over a movie that ridiculed islam. >> to us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose to denigrate a great religion and provoke rage. but as i said, there is no justification. none at all for responding to this video with violence. >> libyan officls say four people have been arrested and are being questioned in response to the killings at the u.s. embassy there. more protests are scheduled throughout the philippines and middle east today. u.s. officials say tensions are high as security is heightened at u.s. compounds around the
7:06am

down earlier this week. the 11th grader was shot and killed tuesday. students at central high school will wear light blue shirts and gather on the school's football field to release blue balloons this afternoon. last night friend gathered for a vigil in his honor. many are left with questions as to why this happened to someone who always made others laugh. >> i don't know somebody decided just to be evil, or if somebody was mistaking him for somebody else or he had something they wanted and took it. >> it will be the smallest tip that will close it case. i saw a vehicle, a person, a small description. >> police are offering a $25,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest of a gunman. a fund for the family has been set up and donations can be dropped off at the school. turning to the race for the white house, president obama
7:08am
will welcome members of t u.s. olympics and para olympics teams to the white house. later tonight he'll attend a private campaign event in the district. mitt romney is in ohio today, following a quick fund raising trip to new york. ohio has been essential to any republican running for president. romney's running mate, paul ryan, will address the values voters summit in d.c. this morning. then he's headed to virginia for two campaign stops. ryan will attend a rally in harrisonburg and travel to roanoke. the federal government should be able to get by money- wise the next six months. the house approved temporary funding legislation last night. this is likely to be the last big action in congress before november's election. the federal reserve is making a big and controversial move to stimulate the u.s. economy. >> it's a move that investors favor, but some economists are
7:09am
skeptical. fox's doug luzader has the details from capitol hill this morning. >> reporter: this action goes a lot further than many expected. the markets seem to like what happened. dow shot up over 200 points. juiced after the always somber ben bernanke made his announcement. >> we're about trying to get jobs going. we're trying to create more employment. >> reporter: fed will be printing more money by gobbling up $40 billion a month in bonds. >> to the extent home prices begin to rise, consumers will feel wealthier, will feel more disposed to spend. >> reporter: that cycle, higher home prices leading to more consumer spending, leading to higher company profits, leading to more hiring, should lower unemployment the fed thinks. but there are risks. if home prices rise, first time buyers could be shut out of the
7:10am
market. and all that additional cash floating around the economy could create another difficult to solve problem, inflation. >> it seems to me this is a departure from what the fed has been doing. it's an attempt by the fed to do something more aggressive to get the economy moving. >> reporter: with the election less than two months away, it's impossible to ignore the implications to the presidential race. it could help the president if it brings unemployment down. but republican mitt romney says the fed's action proves that white house economic policies have been a failure. >> even with all of that new money sloshing around the economy, the fed thinks high employment will stick around. the unemployment rate, which is now at 8.1%, shouldn't drop below 7.6% the fed thinks through all of next year. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. >> dug, thank you very much. ten minutes after the hour now. it is a friday morning. the redskins are gearing up for week two of the nfl season. up next, the sports junkies are back with us for a preview of

7:12am

7:13am
7:14am
[ speaking foreign language ] >> 714. you're looking at a live picture of pope benedict who arrived in lebanon a short time ago. he is there with a message of peace for the middle east.
7:15am
this was a preplanned trip, obviously coming at a time of great turmoil in the middle east. he's supposed to be there for about three days traveling through it's region. lebanon, i was looking at some of the associated press wire copy as we call it, lebanon has nearly 40% of the population catholic. so it's very interesting that's where he's at for a mission of peace. tucker barnes is here with a message of hope regarding our weather. >> yeah, particularly for the weekend. >> easy this weekend. >> all week. today not much. sunny skies. interesting tonight, and tomorrow -- the weekend looks great. sunshine. little cooler than today. 64 now in washington. 64 in new york city. focus, if you would, off to the north and west, up towards
7:16am
chicago and detroit, where temperatures are in the 50s. that cooler air is headed in our direction later tonight. going to have a cold front like you see on our satellite radar later today. few more clouds than yesterday. you can see the clouds straddling virginia and west virginia, just to our west. some of the clouds will roll through here the first half of the day. mostly sunny skies. not that perfect brilliant blue we've had around here. later this afternoon the cold front approaches from the north and west. i don't think the shower activity will hold together all that well as it gets close. maybe a sprinkle or a light shower later tonight overnight into the first part of your day tomorrow. early tomorrow. and then i think by tomorrow morning we should be back in the sunshine and cooler temperatures. 83 today. upper 70s saturday and sunday with sunshine. cooler next week. >> i don't really want a repeat of last weekend. >> oh, yeah. >> so i'm happy about this. i want my power all weekend.
7:17am
wouldn't that be great? power all weekend. saturday night, too? >> let's go to julie wright to find out what's happening on the road. >> you have to count your blessings, julie. power all weekend long. >> that's right. the little things, right? all right. on the roads this morning you'll find southbound 270 not too busy now. check out the cameras at 109. double nickels out of frederick town. loosens up at falls road to the split. no incidents to report. lanes open southbound on 95 out of laurel to the beltway. northbound a crash north of route 100. it's over to the shoulder. 395, heavy volume across the potomac to the southeast/southwest freeway. that's a check of your fox 5 on- time traffic. there's our toaster. time for this morning's sports breakfast. it's a big test for the
7:18am
redskins this sunday. can they pull off another win on the road? the team heads to st. louis to take on the rams. for more on this, we turn to our favorite guys, the sports junkies from 106.7 fm the fan. nice start on the logo, so we make sure we see it. >> we're now officially your favorite. last week we were some of your favorites. now we're back up to favorite status. >> i've stepped it up. and you are my favorites. you really are. i'm a little worried about this game. i know we beat the saints handedly last week. but i think this week will tell us a lot about what this team is, what this version of the redskins is. >> i agree. if they lose a game a lot of people will be screaming, that was a little bit of a fluke when they beat the saints. so i think they have to come out and they've got to be aggressive. st. louis doesn't have much offense fire power. defensively they're making a concerted effort to add parts.
7:19am
new coach in jeff fisher. much better secondary than the new orleans saints does. but they can't score the points. see how robert griffin fares in the second week. >> to me, this game is more about the redskins and less about the reds. is this truly a new era or the same old redskins? the same old redskins will struggle, squeak out a win or possibly lose. if you believe this is a new era, start of a new beginning and rg3 is special, then you got to believe we're going to beat the rams. >> you're recreating rex grossman and mcnabb fumbling around. rg3 wearing the burgandy and gold. it's a new era. i don't think he'll have a rating like last week. >> doesn't have to. >> i think he can have a 90 or 95 rating. that's enough. >> you've been sleeping on the
7:20am
rams. that's what they've been doing. sleeping all week. impressive win for the redskins, and rg3 incredible, exceeded everybody's expectations in week one. the garcon play, which was a great play because he stood tall in the pocket, took a hit. a lot of yards after the catch. they may not get the breaks this week against the rams. >> they don't need to. they don't need to score 40 points and win. last year we scored 17 with grossman. >> they're going up against jackson. steven jackson is a guy with a lot of talent -- >> you mean the same jackson who eked out 2 and a half yards per carry? >> steven jackson -- >> last year jackson had four games went for over 100. helu in limited time had over 100. >> i'd rather have rg3 than sam bradford. >> absolutely. >> do you believe the rams will
7:21am
win? >> do i believe the rams will win? >> yep, do you believe the rams will beat the skins? >> oh, boy. >> come on. you put us on the spot. i have to put you on the spot. >> get on the record. >> i believe the redskins will win. but i believe the rams could win. they're coming back from a heart breaking loss -- and you know what, i have a problem with that. i have a problem with that. >> what? >> i don't like him being on the cover because it's a jinx. >> they could win, probably not going to win. the way i look at this game. >> i love the suit today. >> thank you. thank you very much. we're out of time. we're going to talk about pierre garcon next time. is he going to be out there and for how long, all right? >> sounds good.
7:22am
>> see you in a little bit. >> back on the fox 5 morning news -- >> the junkies. >> the organization to be on with us and go right back into what they're doing. >> they're smooth. >> that's amazing. >> they are smooth. well, there is a new safety feature on metro trains this morning. we'll have details next. >> pepco is back on the hot seat for its handling of this summer's derecho. who the company has to answer to today, and it's not alison seymour. >> oh, it might be! >> stay with us. fox5 morning news continues after the break. >> power all weekend, wow. s where in season right now.

7:24am
7:25am
a brand-new monitoring system for metro will detect problems in real time. it was created in response to the crash back in 2009 that killed nine people. this animation shows what happened when a train entered a faulty track circuit, the
7:26am
computer system failed to detect it and automatically accelerated the next train causing the collision. metro is working to determine what further steps need to be taken before returning the trains to automatic control. pepco will have some explaining to do today. the maryland public service commission is holding a hearing to discuss why millions went days without power back in june. the hearings began yesterday, mostly with bg&e. the commission is asking the utility companies whether they were prepared with adequate staffing and if it's reasonable for electricity to be restored 24 hours after a major event. coming up, what a dog has done to prove he is man's best friend every day the last six years. >> u.s. senate candidate tim
7:27am
kaine takes viewers on a helicopter ride. the former virginia governor joins us live instudio live after the break to talk more about the final stretch of the campaign. >> a live look outside. we're going to get the latest weather and traffic from tucker and julie coming up in a couple of moments. now it's 7:27. ♪

in the people, businesses, and organizations that call greater washington home. whether it's funding an organization that provides new citizens with job training, working with an anacostia school that promotes academic excellence, or supporting an organization
7:29am
that serves 5,000 meals a day across d.c., what's important to the people of greater washington is important to us, and we're proud to work with all those who are making our communities stronger. mitt romneney's position onrove women's health...it's dangerous. vo:mitt romney and paul ryan would get rid of planned parenthood funding. and allow employers to deny coverage for cancer screenings and birth control. we can't afford to let him take away our choices... to take away basic health care. vo: both backed proposals to outlaw abortions...even in cases of rape and incest. i don't think that women's crisis like this in decades.
7:30am
welcome back. it's 7:29. a german shepherd in argentina is giving new meaning to the term man's best friend. since his owner's death six years ago, he has refused to leave the man's grave site. the family says he found the gravesite even though he had never been taken there. they try to take him home, but he runs away to the cemetery. the cemetery staff take care of him and feed him. >> are we done? >> are you going to cry? >> i can't hear it. i have to tune it out. >> we have these types of stories every now and then. how does the dog find the gravesite? that's amazing. >> if we have two seconds later, 9:30 when we start letting it fly, there's an old folk tale in native american
7:31am
culture that takes about loyalty. >> we'll have to take time for that. >> can't wait. >> why it's so special. >> stay tuned. >> tucker, what have you got for us? >> only have to wait two hours. >> it's worth coming back for. >> i won't be emotional when i say it. >> temperatures perfect. 64 now in washington. cooled off again to the west, manassas, good morning, 52 for you. you can see north and west of town temperatures back in the 50s. it is a little cool in spots. 50s in frederick. 50 martinsburg. winchester, 52 degrees. not as much sunshine as yesterday, though temperatures in the low 80s. mostly sunny today, with maybe a sprinkle later tonight. though honestly, i think best chances for that north into pennsylvania. morning look at your satellite radar. few more clouds in the forecast today. last couple of days have been perfect with the bright blue sky. today a few more clouds from time to time and later today,
7:32am
really tonight we have to be concerned with this. this is a cold front approaching from the north and west. later today and tonight that will increase the clouds. the possibility is there that we could see a sprinkle or a light shower with this front. the good news is the front will be moving on through. as we get into the morning hours tomorrow, right back into sunshine and high pressure will build back in and deliver a nice weekend. highs tomorrow cooler than today. but a lot of sunshine saturday and sunday. futurecast, front approaching about 8:00. it falls apart. we get cloud cover, but i don't think we'll see a lot in the way of showers. east of us early tomorrow. beaches tomorrow, generally should be fine. little bit of cloudiness. tomorrow afternoon, sunshine and temperatures in the 70s at the beaches as well. for us, 83 today. mostly sunny skies. gorgeous afternoon. wind out of the south here 5 to 10. temperatures just a few degrees above normal. 62 tonight, partly cloudy skies
7:33am
and could be a shower or sprinkle. best chances will be north getting into southern pennsylvania. there is your weekend forecast. that's a nice september weekend. 87 tomorrow. 77 on sunday. looks like we get showers back in here late monday and tuesday with our next cold front. that's a look at the weather. let's do traffic. there she is, happy friday to julie. she's got the latest on your roadways. julie? >> i do. unfortunately we have another problem to report. this time around in virginia. this is eastbound 66 headed in towards d.c. approaching sycamore street. reported to be an overturned vehicle tying up the left side of the highway, eastbound along 66. some traffic keying by to the -- squeezing by to the right. very much a slow ride here eastbound on 66. westbound lanes open. no problems to report continuing from falls church towards the capitol beltway. outer loop below speed leaving
7:34am
95 towards georgia avenue. inner loop without incident, leaving university boulevard headed for college park. that's a check of your fox 5 on time traffic. in the thick of it. thank you, julie. with less than two months to go before the november election it's crunch time for the candidates on the ballot. in virginia the two men vying for u.s. senate seat are out with new ads in an team to win over voters. joining us is democratic senate candidate tim kaine who is also the former governor of virginia. how are you? >> good. great to be with you. >> good to see you. tell me about your schedule. yesterday, today. >> yesterday started in richmond and it did a seniors round table at leisure world near leesburg and a small business technology in ashburn. today i'm doing a women's round table event in herndon and flying to bristol for a newspaper event, and a music festival. then i'll be back in richmond tonight and get up tomorrow and they'll tell me where i'm going
7:35am
tomorrow. >> you've got to be pleased about your hitting the final stretch, though there's a lot of work between now and election day. >> very close race. we have 53 days. and it's been 19 months, full- time campaign. goes by quick and the next 53 will go by faster. >> stops in leesburg, ashburn, herndon, does that indicate the importance of northern virginia in this election in particular? >> absolutely. northern virginia is almost one- third of the virginia electorate. a little bit shy of that. and so it's important to make my case. i'm excited about things that i've done in northern virginia as governor, for example, rail to dulles was on the drawing board. what i started as governor, i said to my teem, we'll have this under construction by the time i leave. it's been on the drawing board too long. to watch the hot lanes on the beltway, to see the construction on college campus, so i like to come up and check the status of things i worked on, and also listen to people
7:36am
and talk to them about sequestration that is causing significant concern. >> i want to talk about that in just a moment. let's talk about yesterday with the senior citizens, kind of a town hall meeting. what are the main concerns you're hearing from them and how do you reassure them that you've got some answers, because the economic times are very tough, there are threats to medicare and medicaid. what do you say to them? >> the three questions that they asked me were the same questions i hear everywhere, how do we grow the economy, fix the budget and find common ground, leaders who will work together rather than divide us? but in particular, when you talk to seniors, there are a lot of questions about social security and medicare. i i tell them there's a choice. my opponent voted to privatize social security when he was in the u.s. senate before. i will fight tooth and nail against that. i think that would weaken the program. my opponent believes in the ryan proposal with respect to medicare, that would turn
7:37am
medicare over time into a voucher program. i don't think that's the right way. we need to find cost savings, but not shift costs and put them on the shoulders of seniors. i'll find savings with better strategies of controlling the costs of prescription, for example. let's save money, not shift it to the shoulders of seniors. >> there are those who argue the entitlement programs are so expensive and there are so many people as the baby boomers get older, that you realistically you have to cut those programs. >> let me give you an example of, i agree, you have to find savings. but here's an example of a savings you can find without jeopardizing the program. in medicare, we expanded in the early 2000s through this prescription drug program part d. congress made a mistake by putting a prohibition, we can negotiate with the pharmaceutical companies over the prices. that's ridiculous. any business would negotiate and try to get a involve
7:38am
discount. it's more ridiculous, because we do negotiate with the same companies over the prices for the same drugs when we buy them for the va system. if we got that discount in medicare, we'd save $25 billion a year. there's an example of a savings, reform, that would not jeopardize the program or the quality of care, but about help us save money in the budget. we need to look for smart savings like that. let's save money. but let's not shift costs onto seniors' shoulders. >> sequestration. you and governor allen, your opponent, had a decent back and forth about that this week. governor allen says you support the sequestration deal. is that true and if it's true or not, what is your plan to deal with these looming budget cuts that will impact virginia dramatically? >> tony, i took the responsible position last summer, the summer of 2011, about a
7:39am
potential default on america's credit. the position i took, the deal that congress struck wasn't a great one, but the alternate was defaulting on america's credit for the first time ever in the history of the nation. the position i took was the position that eric cantor took, governor mcdonald, president obama. allen was one of the outliiers. we're facing a trillion dollars of cuts that would hurt our defense and economy and virginia. let's let the bush tax cuts expire over $500,000. that produces $500 billion in revenue we can use instead of cuts. now we're looking at $500 billion for potential cuts in sequestration. make the change to medicare i just described. if we allow for negotiations for prescription drug prices, over the 10 years, that's $250
7:40am
billion. now we're down to $250 billion of potential cuts over 10 years. one more move, take away the subsidies for the big five oil companies. they're making plenty of money at the pump. shouldn't be giving them tax subsidies, too. down to $210 billion of potential cuts over the next 10 years. secretary panetta says we can find savings. as governor i had to cut $5 billion out of the budget. i know how to make savings. we don't want the wrong cuts. if you make those three moves, you're dealing with a manageable amount of savings over 10 years. my opponent says make the bush tax cuts permanent. now you've expanded the deficit and we're going to close it 100% through cuts. his all cuts approach, even the "wall street journal" says it hurt the economy, hurt defense and northern virginia. >> i want to get your response to some of governor allen's, one of his major criticisms, i want to show you one of the ads.
7:41am
it's something they keep hitting on. take a look. >> hello, i'm tim kaine. >> former governor of virginia and one of my greatest friends. >> the ad goes on, and the issue is what he's saying is you're closely alied with president obama. are you too closely aligned with the president? >> virginias don't mind a public official, governor, senator working in partnership with the president. when i was governor three years i worked with president bush. rail to dulles would not have happened if it were not for president bush and his secretary of transportation. we worked together in the aftermath of the shooting at virginia tech. we worked together on other issues dealing with virginia military installations. i was a partner for the president. my last year as governor, and now i've been a partner of
7:42am
president obama to do good things. i'm always got define myself as a partner with the president. my opponent, basically, every time he opens his mouth he trashes the president. that's not going to help us solve the problems that we have in washington. we have to have democrats who know how to work with republicans. we have to have senators who know how to work with house members and members of congress who know how to work with the white house. i've disagreed with the president on a number of campaigns. i can be a supporter and disagree. >> if romney takes virginia, can you still win? >> yes, i can. i'll be more likely to work in partnership with romney than my opponent would be likely to work with president obama. >> former governor tim kaine, now democratic senate candidate, thank you for being here. we'll be right back, stay with
7:43am
us. anncr: a good job. it's the key to a a good life.
7:44am
but it isn't always easy to find one... a vote for question seven is a vote for maryland jobs. two thousand construction jobs to build a new resort casino. four thousand permanent jobs, paying... on average fifty five thousand a year. six thousand jobs from increased tourism... and table games like blackjack and poker. add it up: it's twelve thousand new maryland jobs. but to build it you have to vote for it. vote for question seven. and get maryland back to work. when president obama took office. this is china's. under obama, we've lost over half a million manufacturing jobs and for the first time, china's beating us. seven times obama could've stopped china's cheating. seven times he refused. it's time to stand up to the cheaters, and make sure we protect jobs for the american people.
7:45am
[ male announcer ] barack obama: failing to stop cheating. failing american workers. i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. if you pick up a copy of
7:46am

8:45am
fan of the day, log onto our facebook page and leave a comment under ivy's wonderful picture. allison? it is cute. are you looking for love in the wrong places? do you even know that you are. women get trapped in repeating the same relationship mistakes over and over, but this is good news, and you can break the patterns and find the love and fulfillment that you deserve. this time around, she also -- she's always had tips for the men, too. we'll get into that later. she is back with us this morning. good to see you. >> good to be back. >> i said that, because we were talking offcamera, some people don't know they're looking in wrong places be like at six years old we made a list of what we want in our husband or boyfriend or what have you. that list changes, doesn't it? >> we're out here shopping for men like they are an appliance
8:46am
on a shelf at best buy. >> right. >> one of the things we do as women is say, question, get rid of the features and look at qualities. >> absolutely. >> hold the list up against yourself to see are you there yet, since you want to attract that. >> i love it. last year love academy was sold out. this year there are a couple of spaces left. people out there who are interested, i want to know what makes your all-day seminars so compelling. >> why. let me first by saying what it is, teaching and principles of the course based upon did you buy the love lies. it's the dysfunctional belief that we as females have been operating from starting about the age of 3, believe it or not, we actually look back at that time line in the course, but one of the things that sets it apart, so often when we hear of relationship courses, we think, i'm single and looking and i need to be there. i'm married and don't need to
8:47am
be there. regardless of your status, single, married, divorced, widowed, dating, engaged, it doesn't matter. you have to get detoxed from the love lies. >> i love it. that's when the hard work begins. detoxing yourself. >> that's right. we have to do refining and cleaning out and truth telling. but it's really good work that prepares us to attract and sustain healthy love. >> i will mention, too, bassinets to because i want to get it out there it's benefiting local charities who help women who have found themselves in abusive relationships. thank you very much. because that money stays here locally. >> and we're bringing items, too, to donate to the shelters. >> beautiful. we tease that men also need to do work, too. let me get it out before tony
8:48am
says, what about the men? he'll do that. what kind of -- let me ask you this way, what kind of man should we be looking for? i know each case is different. but what should we be looking for? what kind of work does that man need to do to be ready to be in a healthy relationship himself? >> well, the interesting thing is that there are two separate sets of love lies that i have discovered. there are 25 specific to women, and 25 specific to men. and they are not the same and they're actually divergent. we have a session for men called mentality. and we look at what are the male love lies? starting about the same age there's a set of dysfunctional fallacies that the males absorb that when they come into a relationship they're operating from, and behaving from that. we know the results of the love lies coming together, disappointment, frustration, irritation, divorce. so it's time for a new paradigm. >> speaking of that, with this
8:49am
economic downturn, we find more men are underemployed or not employed and women are taking on the role of bread winner. if you have a woman considered a professional, and then you have a man she might be interested in or married to, that that changed. do you need reconditioning with that to go along with the times? >> i have never thought -- i have never claimed that is that big of an issue. when you come into a partnership, that's what it is. so there isn't my money and his money. it's our dollars that we are making decisions about. if in a certain time the man is generating less financial income, there are other ways inside that relationship they can keep things balanced so it doesn't become a sticking point or point of conflict. i've never been one that if the woman is making more there are going to be conflicts. >> doesn't have to be? >> not at all. you're in partnership. you adjust and you keep

8:51am
highlight its health benefits. sarah simmons joins us live from northwest with spike mendleson. what's this all about? >> reporter: this is huge. i heard the disappointment in your voice that we're talking about sauerkraut. i'm going to turn that tone around. it's pretty good stuff. i think you're going to like what we have here today. with me, top chef alum, spike mendleson. >> thank you. >> reporter: he's here to talk about kraut rocks. that is a culinary college i guess in that local chefs have gotten together and trying to take sauerkraut off the back burner. >> got to be a front-runner. it's why we launched this campaign, kraut rocks. kraut has been around for years and has gotten a bad rap, because the idea of fermentation. what we're here to do is take the fear out of fermenting.

8:53am
how do you change people out there, though, that think i don't like sauerkraut, do you think this could help introduce it to people? >> absolutely. i think this can help. people look at sauerkraut putting it on a hot dog. you can use it in so many different ways. the great thing, it's a super food. super healthy. >> reporter: cabbage. >> right. and pickled cabbage. makes it better. get out there, be risky. this day and age i feel like we're a society of a lot of food bloggers and foodies, and into food. why not turn them on to kraut? mustard dabbles here. look good to you? >> reporter: looks amazing. tell me a little bit about who are some of the chefs that you've kind of, i guess, recruited in this kraut challenge and the other places working with you. >> home grown chef, teddy, and

8:55am
here. >> reporter: yummy. great. spike, thank you so much. coming up, we're going to meet some of the other chefs involved in this challenge, see what dishes they have to offer us. and we'll taste this pizza as well. see,, sauerkraut isn't all that bad. back to you. >> i have to say, that looks good. >> i don't have it in my refrigerator, a big tub like you do all the time. but it's still good. sorry to put you out there like that. the impact on a voter i.d. law could have in virginia. with the race this tight, could turning people away help or hurt mitt romney or the president?
